    I think I did my paperwork in August, including the Japanese forms. I do recall reading the 20% tax thing, which is why I went through the trouble of filling it out. I got the impression from a friend of mine that the forms were easier for those of us not in the US.

    DAMN! I was wondering about that. I noticed that the past 2 months there was a large discrepency between what the financial report said and what actually got deposited in our account. Thanks for the heads up Arn!
